Donegal minors, after a two week break, are back in action this Saturday when they face Tyrone in Healy Park, on Saturday. (Throw in 12 noon).
It is the first game in a hectic schedule of three games in eight days as they play Derry on Wednesday night before hosting Antrim, on Saturday week, in O’Donnell Park.
After being caught with two late Fermanagh goals in their opening game in Brewster Park, Charlie Mulgrew will be anxious to see his side bounce back from that surprise 2-4 to 0-9 defeat.
They are strengthened for Saturday’s tie by the return of Patrick McBrearty, who did not feature in the Fermanagh game due to confusion over his availability because of his involvement in county U-21s.
Mulgrew is expected to use Saturday’s game to give a few more panel members an opportunity to claim a place in his championship squad.
Tyrone have two games played and have two points following their victory over Antrim and defeat last weekend to Derry, in Celtic Park. Interestingly, Fermanagh, with wins over Donegal and Antrim, top the group.
